Poi and Kirsty are a young English couple who are getting ready to go on their first round the world adventure together. Poi and Kirsty are a great travel find and already have the traveling spirit. I love reliving through their blog posts, the excitement that comes with first time travel. And I can’t wait to read about their traveling life.
Who are Poi and Kirsty?
for the weekend. At the time of writing this I live with 3 good friends. However, this coming weekend I am returning home to my parents for the last two months before our trip to spend some ‘quality time’ but mainly just to save some money.
What inspired you both to decide to leave the comfort of the conventional box, to travel around the world?
What has the reaction of your friends and family been like?
What are your travel plans for your round the world adventure? How have you chosen your destinations?
Our travel plans are very vague at the minute but that’s how we want them. So far we have a one way flight booked to Beijing and the first few nights in a hostel arranged, after that, who knows. We chose Beijing as our starting point as Kirsty has always wanted to visit China and it seemed like the obvious place to start especially as south East Asia was on my list of places, so it worked out quite nicely. It really is that vague, go to China, head to South East Asia and hang around there for a while.
As someone who is just beginning their travels, how have you prepared for your round the world adventure?
Do you plan on working in any country along the way and if so why?
What do you have hoped to achieve by the end of your travels?
opportunities to interact with people and see new things. I’m not very shy but when it comes to new cultures it might be too easy to say no to a lot of things and I hope to force myself to get stuck in to everything around me.
